STOP THIEF! £1.45 Million Banker Robber.

An Easy Life For Eric

Lloyds Bank, 41% owned by you and me, is doling out a £1.45 million bonus to fat cat Eric Daniels.

True, he’s not quite as corpulent as his fellow banker robber, Stephen Hester of RBS, but then I don’t think either of them will be going hungry anytime soon – unlike the millions who they rip off and exploit every day.

He’s retiring next month.  I expect his senior years promise much more comfort and joy than other pensioners have to look forward to.

Daniels said he was “highly satisfied”.

If I Was Blair I’d Cancel My Donation

The Times, 21st August 2010

There are plenty of other organisations looking after our heroes and their families who would behave far, far better.  Tony Blair should cancel his donation and give it to a different charity.

Chris Simpkins, the Royal British Legion’s director-general is an ungrateful, ill-mannered oaf.  All he had to do was keep his mouth shut.  He has dishonoured the generous intent behind Blair’s donation and he should be ashamed of himself.  The Times also needs to have its motives examined for running this shabby, despicable story.

Our heroes do not give their lives so that fat cat, small-minded, cowardly administrators and journalists can get their names in the papers.  Shame on them!

I am no blind supporter of Tony Blair.  I said what I thought about the donation just five days ago.  I stand by that.

The Poppy Appeal has been my first choice charity throughout my life.   This appalling, graceless behaviour will make me re-think where my money will go this year.
